Jimmy Fallon: I think we should try to get them to stop!

Lorne Michaels: [ nudging Al ] Al? Al? The thing is.. the show is about to start, so you might think about, maybe, wrapping it up..

Maya Rudolph: Hey, Lorne, is she alright?

Lorne Michaels: What do you mean?

Maya Rudolph: I mean, look at her - I don't think she can breathe.

[ Tipper's arms begin to flail in distress ]

Lorne Michaels: Al! You've got to stop. We're worried about Tipper. Honestly. [ to Jimmy ] Jimmy, get Tracy. [ Jimmy runs down the hall ] We think you may be suffocating her, Al..
